Dirty Bits

Each month in this section we ask The DoneFors a new and revealing question… This month we’ve asked The DoneFors: What do you NOT want for Christmas?

What Paul doesn’t want for Christmas: No more music trinkets for me. No more government bailouts for the banks.

What Janine doesn’t want for Christmas: A bad sweater. Purple jeans. The Bubonic plague.

What Liam doesn’t want for Christmas: “My first thought is winter. . . but then I think that I’d also not want a hand gun for Christmas. It just seems too dangerous to have around.”

What Brian doesn’t want for Christmas: “I definitely don’t want anyone to spend their hard earned cash so that I can have something shiny and new…except some nice warm rubber boots.. that’s the only exception because nobody wants cold wet feet for Christmas!..that’s for sure…. so, I don’t want cold feet, frost bite of any kind, or the flu for Christmas.”

Wishing you and your family the best of the holiday season and all good things in 2010.
